The weapons were made by the once famous French arms-making company Societe des Armes a Feu Portatives Hotchkiss et Cie in 1949, and was produced until about 1952. The idea behind this gun was to make it as compact as possible when carrying or storing. It was used by the French Foreign Legion and Paratroopers. This is a nice original rare to find example. It is undamaged and has been deactivated to intermediate specification in 2000. It does not fold as it would have originally due to the deactivation process but it has a moving trigger and slide & the magazine can be removed (it does not cock and dry fire). The left side of the frame is stamped 'CMH No. 1058'. Price for this hard to find machine gun includes UK delivery and deactivation certificate. Sn 13624:24.
